Calculate Conveyor Line Speed

Oct 01, 2018

We first need to get the basic values:

Reducer 1400 rev / min speed ratio 6.57

Roller diameter: 112mm

Drive sprocket 36Z (tooth)

Driven sprocket 18Z (tooth)

How do we calculate the conveyor line speed after knowing the data?

The calculation method is as follows:

(thickness of 112+2t conveyor belt) × 3.14 × 1400 ÷ 57 ÷ 6 × 36 ÷ 18 = xxx (mm / minute)

1. The power of the belt conveyor motor should be comprehensively calculated according to the belt bandwidth, conveying distance, inclination angle, conveying amount, and material characteristics and humidity.

2. Belt conveyors are a type of friction driven machinery that transports materials in a continuous manner. It is mainly composed of a frame, a conveyor belt, a roller, a roller, a tensioning device, a transmission device and the like. It can form a material conveying process between the initial feeding point and the final discharging point on a certain conveying line. It can carry out the transportation of broken materials as well as the transportation of individual items. In addition to pure material handling, it can also be combined with the requirements of the process in the production process of various industrial enterprises to form a rhythmic flow line.

3. Conveyor belt conveyor is also called belt conveyor. The conveyor belt moves according to the principle of friction transmission. It is suitable for all kinds of transportation. It can also be divided into light conveyor belt and heavy conveyor belt according to the properties of materials.
